The front door is surrounded by specially designed privacy glass. There is a remote control in the kitchen/diner where you can choose to have the glass set as clear or opaque.

Kitchen/Dining Area

The expansive kitchen/dining room is filled with natural light from the large sliding patio door and glass roof light. There are also high-level side windows in the dining area which have prismatic privacy glass. This works to obscure the view to and from the neighbouring property while still allowing in natural light.

In the warmer months you can open up the sliding doors to unify the interior and exterior spaces.

Sitting Room

At the front of the property, there is a ground floor sitting room, complete with a comfy sofa, window bench seat, oversized bean bags, large Smart TV and a built-in wood burning stove. You can open the folding doors between the sitting room and kitchen/dining area to create one big open plan room that makes a great space for socialising and bringing your family together. Alternatively, in the cooler months, keep the doors closed and create a cosy, snug sitting room where you can chill out and watch a film on the large Smart TV while roasting in front of the built-in wood burning stove.

There is also a selection of children’s toys stored in the drawers under the window seat and some games on the shelves to help keep everyone entertained. Please note that Seaward allows children of 5 years and over or babies in arms.

Staying at

Quick guide to your location

Burnham Overy Staithe beach offers breath taking views, a wonderful, secluded Norfolk beach, only a mile walk from the Staithe.

For immediate access to the coast, Burnham Overy Staithe has a small fishing harbour and supports a local industry based mostly around the local shellfish. Excellent coastal walks are numerous, but a special mention must go the isolated bay that can be accessed from the harbour.

The village pub, The Hero is well worth a visit while you are here, offering great food and a warm welcome!
